Welcome to The Supplier Fuel Study!

This is an unprecedented piece of research, for the first time bringing together film agencies, sustainability consultants, academia, suppliers, producers, broadcasters, streamers and major studios, to deliver decarbonisation information for the industry.

This study has two key goals:

  • Build the most reliable carbon footprint to date for all of London’s audiovisual sector’s (film, TV, music video, commercials etc) road transport and mobile power (generator) emissions.
  • Create a just and equitable decarbonisation pathway for London’s audiovisual suppliers’ (i.e. caterers, facilities, set build, camera rental, lighting, etc) road transport and mobile power fleets.

What we are aiming to deliver:

  • A baseline year for supplier emissions from transport and mobile power.
  • The first step towards a pathway for industry suppliers’ possible decarbonisation for their vehicles and mobile power generation by looking at current and possible emissions trajectories.
  • An inclusive and collaborative standard of best practice.
  • Equitable phase out deadlines for key technologies.
  • “On the ground” practicality - not an academic read.

But wait, there’s more!

We all want to avoid an unjust transition for our industry suppliers. By including supplier’s data we can ensure that any recommendations for hard stops (like ending the use of diesel generators and vans) takes into account the social and financial implications on your company.

  • You will have more information to support your next vehicle and generator investment decisions. What could you be investing in, why and when? What will your clients be asking for?
  • We will highlight any found funding gaps to help with possible next steps, such as creating industry-wide supplier funding for decarbonisation.
  • We will attempt to create sample benchmark companies that reflect your business. (Please note: We will not be writing about any particular company, only speaking in averages)

How can I still get involved?

Whilst our survey is now closed, we are working with productions to study generator use on set. If you would like to discuss collaboration on your production, please contact

  • Our first work, The Fuel Project:, Supplier Guidance Report, came out in October 2022. It was written to support film & television suppliers with the intel they need to make planet-saving choices when it comes to vehicles and mobile power units.
